The sheer amount of code that exists in the average enterprise, along with the number of dependencies that exist between it all, makes managing IT these days a complex undertaking that can easily overwhelm even the most sophisticated of IT departments. Looking to even those odds, Seerene this week unfurled a namesake cloud analytics service that discovers both the relationships between specific sets of code and recommends how best to optimize application performance.
Created by a team of engineers that spun out of the Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam-Babelsberg, Germany, Seerene CEO Oliver Muhr says the Seerene Platform makes uses of LocalAnalyzer software installed on premise to create a data format that describes the overall IT environment. Data is then sent to the Seerene analytics application over a secure connection in a way that doesn’t require any source code to be moved.
Once that is accomplished, Seerene not only identifies the relationship between various modules of code, Muhr says it provides recommendations on optimizing how that code should be deployed and run. Furthermore, Muhr says IT organizations can also run analytics that show how well external, managed services or outsourced IT service providers are both performing when it comes to maintaining an application and the level of service being delivered versus what was promised.
Rather than delivering a mix of conflicting dashboard information, Muhr says Seerene is specifically designed to provide IT organizations with a holistic approach to managing application performance that provides actionable intelligence.
Arguably, many IT environments are simply too complex for the average IT organization to effectively manage. For that reason, most of their time is spent simply trying to keep applications up and running. Optimizing application performance gets relegated to whatever amount of time they have left over. But now it’s also apparent that the sophistication of analytics tools has considerably improved. As those tools continue to improve, the challenges associated with managing complex IT environments should decline in the months and years ahead.
